Acupuncture is a stimulation, by the insertion of needles, of specific points in the body which has the ability to alter various biomechanical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relieving  neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the function of hormonal systems, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increases circulation and relief from pain. Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to encourage natural healing and improve energy.
